TRAGIC Updates!

Posted June 5, 2013 by Julie in Useless Junk / 0 Comments


The TRAGIC Release Week (and the week after) were a full-blown success from my viewpoint! I’m thrilled with how things shook out and I’d just like to take a second to thank a bunch of people who helped… Mostly, Damaris and the bloggers who participated in the release day blitz via Good Choice Reading Tours. Also, I had a private blitz set up and I had a bunch of my favorite people take part in that one as well. So a giant thank you to all you bloggers! 🙂

TRAGIC is rocking the reviews over at Amazon and this tour doesn’t even start until next Monday, so these are not tour reviews, these are mostly verified purchases after my very successful ENT BOTD ad that ran last Friday! Just take a look at what they’ve been saying:

5.0 out of 5 stars Umm……..WOW, June 4, 2013
By Cara Geibel (Butler, PA United States) – See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: TRAGIC: Rook and Ronin, #1 (Kindle Edition)

When I bought Tragic, I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. No wait, that’s not right. I didn’t like this book, I LOVED it.

Rook is so well written. She’s been through a lot, and I mean a lot. Bad childhood, and an almost worse beginning into being an adult. But she makes it better for herself. And it’s this that ultimately brings her to Denver and Ronin.

Now Ronin, he’s a harder character. There were points where I loved him, and then there were other points where I wanted to flip him off and swear like a sailor at him.

The best parts of this story though are Rook and Ronin together. The story moves without being rushed, and the ending is satisfying, but yet still makes me want to read more, much, much more. I’m really looking forward to the next book.

All I can say is, buy it, read it. You won’t be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much more than a romance!!!, June 3, 2013

This review is from: TRAGIC: Rook and Ronin, #1 (Kindle Edition)

The two main characters, Rook and Ronin, have actual depth
to them. The author did an amazing job of presenting the characters and creating a story line that can continue beyond this book. This is not a cliff hanger…….thank God! But, you do want more after reading this book. Job well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Call it Lucky Charms, because it’s magically delicious!, June 2, 2013

First time reviewer here, but I felt that I had to log on to share my opinion and make an effort not to sound like an raving lunatic in the process! I loved this book… The chemistry between Rook and Ronin was amazing and so real. It was sweet and sassy and at times it really made my heart ache in my chest. I will definitely recommend this book, AND this author, to my friends! Can’t wait for the next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! This is a must read!, May 29, 2013

Tragic is an outstanding read. Once I started I couldn’t put it down. Rook, the main character, was amazing. I just loved how strong she was. And Ronin, he was such a sweet guy. I also enjoyed the modelling setting, it was a nice change from the college set romance I have been reading lately.

Definitely, will be adding Tragic to my favourites list. Looking forward to Rook and Ronin’s story continuing!

5.0 out of 5 stars I would of given it 10 stars if I could!, May 28, 2013

I checked my progress on my kindle the entire time because I did NOT want this book to end.
If you read a lot of my reviews you will see that I always comment on the sex scenes and let me just say this book was HOT! You may also see that I do NOT like when an author has too much build up and waits until after the half way mark to have the main characters hook up but this author did it RIGHT!!!

When you read this book, (not if you read this book) when you will see what I mean. The photo shoot scenes leave you panting and wanting MORE!! This author is very talented and I will be spreading the word about this book as fast as I can. There is no cliffhanger but the author sets us up for an awesome series leaving you wanted more Rook and Ronin! I will read anything this author produces if they are like this book. Plus you cannot beat the price I would of paid more if I had to it was worth it. There wasn’t anything about this book that I didn’t like and that’s rare for me.
I just hope the future books have more sexy scenes!

Right now, this book has no one-stars – which is so great! I love it, of course. But there was one yesterday that was removed by Amazon, trolls I guess. It looked suspicious to me, but I blew it off and went back to work. When I came back l few hours later, it had been removed. Nice to know Amazon is finally paying attention to bogus one-stars coming from all different areas.

Sometimes it’s a weirdo from Goodreads, sometimes it’s another author, sometimes it’s just a random thing. Regardless, I’m not the only author I know who had a troll discovered and removed from Amazon this week, so that’s pretty cool. :).

Of course, it was a banner day for troll one-stars as Sylvia Day learned… some people think the review systems is there to make a statement about publishers and or things that are NOT the story contained within the pages of their Kindles or paperbacks. I feel very bad for her, even if I do understand why people were upset. It’s not her fault, and maybe her book is awful, but somehow I doubt it. You don’t rise to the top like that and put out one star books. It’s not the author’s fault if the publisher makes mistakes like this.

MANIC – book two of the Rook and Ronin adventure is nearing completion. This book goes to the editor on June 16th. There is a cover reveal on June 17th via Xpresso Tours. If you have a book blog and would like to get in on that, just sign up here.
